Kevin Shattenkirk Saves Capitals With Overtime Goal In Game 3 Vs. Penguins

by

Kevin Shattenkirk rescued the Washington Capitals after a monumental collapse Monday night.

The veteran defenseman, who the Capitals acquired at the NHL trade deadline, scored the winning goal in overtime in Game 3 of their second-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Caps blew a 2-0 lead with less than two minutes remaining in regulation, but an early power play gave Washington a chance to leave the game with a much-needed win. Shattenkirk scored on the ensuing man advantage.

The Capitals now trail in the series 2-1 with Game 4 coming up Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.
